The first thought would be WTF. Second would be- glad they didn't come through the windshield!

I'm glad they weren't on a tractor!

I was reading on GTT that Pond made their first tractor by adding a front end on a walk behind. Have you thought about reverse engineering that? Make a walk behind from a tractor?

Put them on a walk behind and they'll gear it up enough that you'd have a run behind!!! :tapping_fingers:

Seems like a lot of them actually are run behinds. Shaw used 18 in tires on their big walk behinds.Some even had 22s. Standard Twin used 18s also. I think these are 18s here.

I was thinking they look like 24's. They have 8 bolt centers which could make them as large as 28's. They resemble Massey wheels off of some of their smaller farm tractors like the 81, 20, and 22.
